I've been very blessed, but sometimes the normal stresses & struggles of life cloud my perspective. Today I realized again what really matters. A nurse in the office where I oriented for this job was diagnosed with a tumor & died in her sleep a week ago. She was about my age, very active & always smiling. Another reminder that life is short & precious. Good night to make a Thanksgiving card, which I did using Impression Obsession stamps Nest Collage, F13050 & Grateful, A8783. I tend not to use my Kaleidacolor pads until this time of year when I pull out my favorite one--Autumn Leaves. It also gives me a chance to make use of my neglected brayer. Versafine Onyx Black was used for the stamping. After distressing the edges I sponged on Delicata Golden Glitz.
The card front was run through my Big Shot with a piece of burlap--Rosemary has me on a roll with that!--& those edges are also sponged with the gold. I'm entering the Impression Obsession Colors of Fall Challenge, grateful in my heart for all of you. This also qualifies for the Ribbon Carousel Blog challenge, so I'm liking up there as well. Edited to Add: The colors of Fall leaves are used for my card, so I'm also entering the Tuesday Trigger challenge in the Moxie Fab World.
